NFC Commander and Nokia Create contest


Nokia Create contest was announced in early September and is running until late December. It’s a great initiative from Nokia to push developers to develop new creative apps in one of the categories Nokia has defined. If you have you should go over the contest webpage to read more about it.

My app, NFC Commander was chosen as a runner up for the Nokia Music mini contest, that means it was one of the top 10 submissions. It’s great news (for me). But I have great news for you too! NFC Commander was on sale until the end of November but now will remain at 0.99$ forever.

I hope you will enjoy the news as much as I do, an update of NFC Commander is also on the workings planning to add more functions to it.

Trial mode is there to let you discover what’s the full potential of NFC Commander by browsing the different categories of actions you can program an NFC tag to do.

  • Program a tag to launch your favorite app, now with NFC Commander you can set a NFC tag open any application from the windows phone store. All you have to do is launch NFC Commander , go to “app launcher” section and write the AppID of the application you want your tag to open.

You can find the AppID of any application by going to the windows phone store and search for the app. Once you found the page of your desired app copy everything after the last ‘ / ’ into the NFC Commander text box and hit write. That’s it, tap your phone to the tag and the app you have chose will open*.
